TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 58% Chance Higher
This prediction is an attempt by the editor of this newsletter to use the full 5 year history of data collected from this project to forecast a probability estimate for whether this week’s sentiment is going to be correct and ultimately what the markets will do this coming week.

Details: Last week’s majority sentiment from the survey was 56.3% Lower, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 56% Chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.68% Higher for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 55.8% Lower with a greater average confidence from those who responded Higher. Similar conditions have occurred 24 times in the previous 294 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct 42% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.19% Lower for the week (this is a rare instance where the market went Higher more frequently but the average move of all similar instances was Lower). Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 58% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.
